  • Abstract:
    The six congressional committees requesting this assessment asked OTA to focus on a very specific question: "Can the United States reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the near term?" To answer the question Congress posed, OTA focuses specifically on potential emissions reductions in the next 25 years. The analysis is structured around six key sectors of the U.S. economy: Buildings, Transportation, Manufacturing, Energy Supply, Forestry, and Food. To the extent possible, the report quantifies the potential for emissions reduction within each sector—areas where gains in efficiency, product substitution, conservation, or other technical options can ameliorate increases in CO2 and other greenhouse gases. A selection of policy options that appear to offer the most promise for achieving these reductions in the United States is presented. OTA was charged to look abroad as well, so the special needs of Eastern Europe, the U.S.S.R, and developing countries-with respect to both energy and natural resource issues—are also addressed.
